Shea Town
Shea Stadium (named after a lawyer named Shea, not the Che on T-shirts) is the home of the New York Mets. Since about 2002, "Shea Town" has been used in rap music to mean New York City.

If the Mets have a winning season, you might hear "Shea Town" very often. If the Mets lose, "Shea Town" will probably be a forgotten term.
